Her work is included in the book “Picturing Chinatown” by Anthony W. Lee (2001),and her photographs also illustrated an article by Mary Davison “The Babies of Chinatown” in the Overland Monthly, 1899. She exhibited twelve prints in the Second San Francisco Photographic Salon of 1902, which was reviewed in Camera Craft magazine.
